Fire strikes suddenly. Adults and children must leave a burning home without hesitation and leave behind all material possessions. Where does a family get help if their home is destroyed by fire? Food, clothing, coats, shoes and a place to sleep are immediate needs of fire victims.
The Burn Out Fund was established October 7, 1964 by Boise Firefighters Local Union members during Fire Prevention Week. The Burn Out Fund provides short term assistance to families whose homes are destroyed by fire. The organization donates cash to families to provide shelter, food and clothing.
